Man Of Match: A. Hancock

Slough, playing one of their hardest games of the season, surprised their supporters by defeating a strong Woking side and so qualifying to meet Windsor & Eton in the semi-final of this Competition.

The Woking team included A.H. Bell, the Amateur International and four Surrey County players.

A late start was made, owing to the home team not arriving. Eventually, the game did get going and Werrell won the toss for Slough, giving them the advantage of a slight breeze.

The game started at a furious pace, with both defences doing fine work. Werrell being exceptionally good in the Slough goal.

After a scramble in the goalmouth, Hancock screwed the ball into the net from a very difficult angle to give Slough the lead. Only half a minute elapsed before a terrific shot from Harmon rebounded into goal via the post, after a fine individual effort. At half-time Slough led 2-0.

Warner, the Woking back, who was hurt just prior or to the interval, returned to the field when the teams started the second half.

A sensational first minute saw Hancock put Slough further ahead after a centre by Greenwood. The visitors were playing well and it was a surprise when Humphreys reduced the home team's deficit with a shot which gave Werrell no chance whatever.

When, five minutes from time, Kyle added a second for Woking, excitement ran high and Slough’s goal was subject to great pressure.

Once Werrell pushed a shot from Humphrey on to the crossbar and punched the rebound clear - the referee refusing the appeals of the Woking team that the ball had crossed the line.

The final whistle came with Slough deserved winners of a hard and well fought game.

Woking: Adams; Warner, Bell; Johnson, Crane, Lane; Grove, Kyle, Humphreys, Swallow, Sailesbury.
